The FusionQuest affiliate network is closing down on August 10, 2009 after a nine year stretch. I received the following email today…
FusionQuest has been offering affiliate tracking solutions to merchants operating an affiliate program continuously since August of 2000. It is thus with some regret that I must inform you of the following.
As of August 10, 2009, FusionQuest will cease operations and will no longer be available to provide affiliate tracking. The server will be shut down and all services will be discontinued, including the Order-It shopping cart.
A number of factors have conspired to force this unfortunate situation. I know this will cause a number of merchants inconvenience and I apologize for that.
As of Aug. 10, 2009, the fusionquest.com domain will be absorbed by ShareASale.com. I have worked with Brian Littleton (CEO of ShareASale) to secure a special deal that will allow all FusionQuest merchants to move over to the ShareASale platform with minimal expense. The regular price to set up a ShareASale account is $500. I have arranged that all current FusionQuest merchants can set up an account for only $125 if they use the specially provided coupon code.
Each FusionQuest merchant has their own assigned coupon code. This code and the special link to redeem the code is available by logging in to your current FusionQuest account. There is also a presentation available there as well giving details of the ShareASale system.
I highly recommend that all FusionQuest merchants take advantage of this offer. ShareASale is a well established, rock solid platform with a large network of very loyal and active affiliates. I have met Brian Littleton a number of times and can vouch for his integrity and commitment to the industry.
Some of you have been using the FusionQuest system for a long time and I want to thank you for your support. I will miss providing this service for you.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter and I wish you the best as you move forward with your online endeavors.
Sorry to see them go – so long, FusionQuest.
